Leonard B. Arrowood
ESCANABA — Leonard B. Arrowood, 85, of 2000 10th Ave. S., Escanaba, passed away Monday evening, Nov. 20, 2017, at Pinecrest Medical Care Facility in Powers. He was born on Sept. 12, 1932, in Manistique, the son of Ralph and Beatrice (Lanora) Arrowood. Leonard grew up in Manistique and graduated from Manistique High School in 1950. Following graduation in 1951, Leonard began his life-long career for the American Steamship Company. He worked on the ore boats as a chief engineer until his retirement in 1994. Leonard married the former Dora M. Botrow on Aug. 14, 1957, in Escanaba and she preceded him in death on Jan. 12, 2007. Together, the couple shared 47 years of marriage and raised three sons. Leonard enjoyed many aspects that the outdoors had to offer — especially spending time on his boat fishing or out in the woods snowmobiling. He loved being with his family and watching his grandchildren.
Leonard B. Arrowood is survived by sons, Jim Arrowood of Escanaba, and Dave Arrowood of Daggett; four grandchildren, Courtney, Jessica, Derek, and Kaylin; six great-grandchildren; sister, Genevieve Chartier of Manistique; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents, Leonard was preceded in death by one stepson, Len Case; and sister, Ruth Lynts.

Funeral services celebrating the life of Leonard will follow at 1 p.m. Monday in the Anderson Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor David Grant officiating.
